I bought this unfinished wooden sled from Michael's. The wooden #'s came from Hobby Lobby.
I used the Americana paint color Light Cinnamon. I used a Craft Smart color called Cherry Cobbler on the wooden numbers.
I bought some garland to cut up and use on the sled, red jingle bells, and two mittens.
I painted everything and then used hot glue to apply the #'s, garland, and mittens. I edged everything with Dazzling Metallics Champagne Gold paint. I also sprayed the entire sled with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in Abdominable Snowman color. This added a layer of sparkle to the sled.

I want to share with you my cute Fall altered bird houses.
Here is a close-up of the paint colors I used. Love these colors!!
These are easy to alter. I just painted them and cut my paper to size to fit on the houses.
I used the Authentique Thankful paper collection and some of the stickers from the sticker sheet.
I raided my stash of fall goodies and decorated the bottoms with raffia, leaves, pumpkins, acorns, and pine cones.
The middle pieces are chalkboards. They were in a 2 pack at World Market/Cost plus. I painted them in coordinating colors (Americana Brand Autumn Red and Persimmon). I used letter stickers on them instead of messing with chalk. The trees and birds are from a Maya Road chipboard bird/trees set that I altered with paper and paint.
Here are more pictures!
Here they are on my entry way table. I can't decide where to keep them, but this is where they are at right now.
Here is my YouTube video showing you everything in detail.
Thanks for looking!

Today I have a Thanksgiving Sign that I want to share with you.
The paper is from Authentique Thankful collection. The chipboard banner shapes are from Maya Road. The tulle, paint, and coaster are from Michael's.
I painted the scallop banner in the Dazzling Metallic Rich Espresso Paint. I used the Champagne Gold to edge the coaster.
I found this set of coasters at Michael's and just loved the look of them and had to use one in a project.
The sticker says, "I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual..." Henry David Thoreau

I have a "harvest" banner to share with you today.
I will have close up's of each letter at the end of the blog.
I cut the paper to fit each banner and glued them down I punched holes into each banner and added some We R Memory keepers eyelets.
At this point, you can just add your letters. I like to layer so I cut some doily shapes and scalloped ovals.
All of the supplies are shown in more detail in the video below.
To embellish the banner, I added stickers from the sticker sheet in the paper collection and some ribbon from my stash. I used brown tulle to string the banner. I also covered each letter in Golden Rod stickles.
Here is a snapshot of each letter.
Here is the video. This will show you all of the supplies used, how I used them, and a closer look at the banner.
I hope you enjoyed my banner. Thank you for looking.
